I have an 02 SE with the stock D2R HID bulbs. One blew during the week so i bought new ones online to replace them both, I can't believe they are $100 for one bulb at stores smh. My question is, is there an easy way to change them? I have a CAI so that side is easier to get to, but its the other side im worried about. I know you would have to take out the coolant tank to get the that housing, but theres still coolant in there. How do i get the coolant out of the tank, then remove the tank? Or would i just be better off taking off the bumper and removing the headlights to do it?
When you remove the overflow-tank hose from the radiator, put a cork or something in the hose. After ya remove the screws, keep the tank as level as possible so the the collant won't spill from the rear. Then just lift the tank up while snaking the hose out from the wiring.
By the way, the spout for the windshield washer fluid can be removed by turning it about an eighth of a turn counter-clock-wise. Then lift it out.
Stock '06 Altima S w/comfort package.
i have to remove the windshield washer fluid one too? geez its like Nissan went through the trouble just to make it so you have to go to a dealership to change out your bulbs
alot of cars these data are a puta to change a simple low beam bulb or turn signal bulb. some cars require removal of front bumper and headlight assembly to get to it. your gen altima is actually alot easier compared to the 08-12 altima where u have to pull the wheel and fender linung out of the way for it. i know for a lexus ls460 headlight bulb, the job pays about an hour and half. so its just not nissan
yea there were alot of $10 bulbs that just didnt seem legit. I havent had a chance to put these in yet cause its been freezing here in rochester so waiting for it to warm up, but im almost afraid that these are D2S bulbs and they wont fit right. I dont know the difference just by looking at them but im only scared cause alot of websites i seemed to look at were selling D2R and D2S as the same bulb type

ddmtuning.com had replacement HID bulbs for $15 a pair. thats what happens when you buy them from the wholesaler. And they are real, not fake, im 100% sure. I have a ddmtuning HID kit for my fogs. Cost $35 for the two ballasts and bulbs. I've had it for three years so far.
If you look at pictures of other HID kits branded with a certain company's name for $100 or more, it looks the exact same as the kits from DDM, but the DDM's dont come with any brand tag on them. Its weird how good the DDM kits are because, like you i believe you get what you pay for. I was skeptical at first but you cant argue with three years of operation, plus a lifetime warranty on bulbs/ballasts.
